Bihar Floods: Situation to remain grim as Monsoon rains to commence again, to stay till October 10

Bihar floods

Incessant Monsoon rains have been wreaking havoc across may parts of Indian, especially over Bihar and Uttar Pradesh during the last few days. So far, torrential rains have claimed around 139 lives in both the states. Bihar seems to be worst hit with water swaying across the state, bringing life to a standstill including in the state capital of Patna.

Although some relief was seen during the last 24 hours for Bihar with weather remaining almost dry during the last 24 hours, but Monsoon rains are all set to revisit the state. This would again hamper the ongoing rescue and respite work.

According to weathermen, we expect rains to commence again over the state as the cyclonic ciruclation which is presently marked over Southeast Uttar Pradesh would shift over Bihar and Jharkhand. A trough would also seen extending from North Bihar to Odisha.

The system seems to be stronger one and is likely to stay put over the region for a longer duration. Not only this, another cyclonic circulation is likely to form over Bangladesh and adjoining area. With this, humid winds from Bay of Bengal would be continuously infusing moisture over Bihar for the next few days.

Thus, between October 3 and 5, extended Monsoon rains are likely to lash many parts of Bihar. It might not be as heavy as heavy during the last few days but light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells would be seen over the state. However, continuous downpour would not let the flooding water to recede and would further add to the woes. River would continue to flow  over or near to danger-mark only.

Thereafter also, weather over Bihar would not go completely dry as on and off light rains with few moderate spells till October 8.

Rains would again bounce back on October 9 and 10 as showers would pick up pace. Moderate to heavy rains are likely to lash Bihar during that time.  With this, flood scare would continue to haunt people of Bihar until October 10.
